Attorney General of Nevada

The most notable campaign ad from Catherine Cortez-Masto, was a half negative/half positive message. She is the incumbent Attorney General who I had a lot of respect for.
Travis Barrick is the Republican candidate for the attorney general’s office who hasn’t had a visible advertisement this entire election cycle. I would not have even known who he was, if it wasn’t for the television commercial.

He was a convicted felon and put in jail for “harassing women” – those were the main statements of fact.

That was posted at the Las Vegas Sun website, the more liberal of the two Las Vegas papers. If any candidate could just pull a Sandoval and keep quiet, it would be one that was running against an opponent that has no money to run any television ads (except a youtube rebuttal)

Her political consultant, campaign manager, Democratic handlers, or whoever… thought it was a good idea to skew the facts and tell the misleading story and slap a less than “Attorney General”-ish picture on it.  Why?  Who talked the incumbent into bringing this attention upon herself?  Is she that afraid of conservative talk radio that she wanted to launch a pre-emptive strike?  I don’t know, I want an Attorney General that is going to look at all the facts and not play on people’s fears and lazyness.  Maybe she was persuaded to put out this message and hope voters will remember the television spot and not vote for the Republican.  The ‘I heard something bad about this candidate’ syndrome is something that we can do without. I can hope for an informed electorate.
